Devin Townsend is one of the most talented and prolific musicians in the progressive and metal arenas. This week’s Heavy Elements show on Progzilla Radio focusses on the Canadian musician with a three hour show covering his solo work and contributions with a wide variety of artists over the last quarter of a decade…

Tune in to Progzilla Radio at the earlier time of 9.00pm (BST) or 10.00pm (US Eastern) Friday 3rd May.

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #310       (SeaProg 2019 Festival Preview #1)

The Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock (SeaProg) will hold its sixth event June 7th – 9th at the Columbia City Theater, with an amazing bill of unique artists.

The Progressive Tracks Show is proud to once again be the voice of SeaProg on the airwaves, and will host a half-dozen shows featuring SeaProg artists!

This first week will feature a national headliner and a ‘regional dark horse’, with music and conversation.

Warning: Listening to these SeaProg shows will entice you to spend your money getting to Seattle in order to attend this amazing event. But then, you just got your tax refund, right?   Hmmm…      ;o)

I’ve released my third album. Streaming is free, but I hope you’ll consider buying the album, as ten percent of all sales will go to Duke Children’s Hospital. Here is why:
1. One Coin                   
2. Vita Brevis                   
3. A Month of Sundays           
4. On Your Wedding Day           
5. Glass Cannon Symphony           
6. In Season and Out of Season       
7. A Month of Sundays (Reprise)

This album is dedicated to my friend Alan Aycock, who had cystic fibrosis but was a great friend to me.

Alan never married, never had children, never grew old, and never grew up

The quality of his humor and wit was such that you could never be completely certain if he was laughing with you or at you.

I suspect his experiences taught him that life was too precious for someone to be anything other than honest and faithful.

Those who knew him still miss him.

And those who didn’t missed out.

Ten percent of all sales from A Month of Sundays will be donated to Duke Children’s Hospital in his memory.

Thank you for listening.

It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?

Here’s the link:

This week on Prog-Watch my very special guest is the legendary keyboardist, composer, and vocalist Rod Argent! Rod rose to fame with The Zombies, and was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame as a member of that seminal band! After the Zombies disbanded in the late 1960s, he enjoyed much success with his own band Argent and with various solo albums and collaborations, before getting back together with Colin Blunstone and reforming the Zombies for a new century! Tune in to hear much of my chat with Rod, and a lot of great Zombies, Argent, and solo Rod Argent music!

Starts tomorrow (28 April) on Progzilla Radio!
